    I can't believe anyone would actually eat one!

    When my grandparents were still alive, my grandmother loved them. I would take them out to lunch once a week and if it was McRib season, she always insisted on McD's. Grandpa didn't share in her enthusiasm, but wisely ate his Quarter Pounder in silence. I guess I shouldn't be too hard on McD's. At least the commercial conjured up a good grandparent memory.

    Ah the McRib. Coupled with the McPoutine from a Quebec McD's and you are into some grand eating!

    While the McRib is bad, I've found that the McBratwurst (served with ketchup) meal may be the worst thing I've seen on McD's menu (ahhh, Houghton, Michigan.)

    On second thought, though, boy the McRib is bad. I admit to having tried it (I have a severe sandwich problem) several years ago, and whenever I see the commercials I take on a greenish-grey tint.

    Talk about regional fast food!

    1. McDonald's Pork Tenderloin Sandwiches in Indiana
    2. The McLobster Roll in New England
    3. McDonald's Fish and Chips in Seattle (back in the late 1980's) and
    McDonald's Lattes and Espressos in Seattle (1990's)
    4. Wendy's Green chile cheeseburgers in New Mexico

    I remember when my Dad was still living and my daughter was small, it was a thrill for her to go to McDonalds with Granddaddy and get a
    McRib Sandwich. They also would get breakfast biscuits called tender pork and gravy-I think that it was a pork tenderloin cooked in some type of gravy. We like to remind her of her McDonald days now when she chooses an upscale restaurant to dine in.

    The lobster wasn't bad. It was small and overpriced for what it was, but it wasn't bad. I'll admit to doing a McRib more than once, but have not had one in several years. I'd love to eat one today, though, being very hungry. I'm fasting for a doctor visit tomorrow, and anything on the McD menue looks good today!

    what kind of wine is appropiate for dining when the 'McRib' is the entree? I would go with a nice,unobtrusive muscatel,preferably bottled towards the end of the week.

    Lonestar, a McRib is a shredded pork patty formed to look like "ribs", slathered with a BBQ sauce, and served with pickles on a "special" bun. If you have not had one, you are not missing much, but as I posted above, they are not really that bad.

    Something in a nice, slightly pink Mogan-David 20/20, perhaps?

    A couple of weeks ago I gave in and ordered the sausage gravy and biscuits at McDonald's. I don't know why I do these things. Not long before that I tried their beef and provolone Oven Select sandwich. I have two words about these products: Yuck! And if I get over remembering the taste I'll provide the other word.

    Thanks - I always wondered because the commercials show them looking like ribs - with bones.

    Michael, last weekend my husband and I were out running around for Pig vaccines (harder to find than you would think). We didn't have breakfast and were hungry and the only place we saw on the road was a Jack-In-The-Box. We decided to split one of the "Pannido" sandwiches, and it was the most vile think I have ever tasted. I could not eat it, and the dog wouldn't eat it either. Blech.

    I just Googled Pannido. I can feel your pain. I think a lot of these chains are trying to get back customers who have given up on the stuff they've been peddling for years.

    The McRib, although not a true rib or BBQ sandwich was not a bad tasting sandwich. It was McD's version of something. I have only had one and it was a few years ago.

    The brat they served that I bought a few years ago while on a business trip was a Johnsonville Brat and I also though it was better than decent.

    In The Sundancer's opinion, the biggest problem with McD's is that there are so many of them that controlling their quality is an issue.

    I once tried AM/PM Minimarket's version of the McRib. Not that it means much-----but McD's is better.

    I was on Maryland's eastern shore recently, and many of the Mickey Ds over there are actually selling crab cake sandwiches. For the life of me, i can't figure out why anyone would get crab cakes from McDonalds when the real thing is available from places like The Captain's Galley and The Cove in Crisfield and from many other places like them.

    I am not sure what you are talking about but I gave you my personal opion of what I enjoyed. If you do not like McD's, that is OK. I happened to enjoyed what I posted. I will gladly repeat what I inidicated initially as I enjoyed the sandwich by McD;s indicating my enjoying the sandwich which is not BBQ or ribs, but as something else and being tasty.

    Wallyum,
    You'd better bring a McBib to prevent sloppage. Tends to be a problem with the things, or so I am led to believe.

    Dearfolk,
    Wonder why they've never introduced a McLivermush Breakfast Biscuit (or some such) in North Carolina. Maybe it's because people would want slaw on it, and they'd have to decide between green and red (Lexington-style) slaw....
    I'll REALLY know they're straining at gnats when they start selling a McSoutisso in Morgantown, North Carolina - or offer the McRib in central South Carolina with a mustard-based sauce.
    Thank God for small favors - The Normaltown Cafe' is reopening soon. I'll never have to worry about patronizing chain eateries again... except on the days when The Normaltown is closed.

    I've had a few, usually with a friend of mine who goes to McDonald's ONLY when they have McRibs.

    At least you can go out and look for vaccine. I have had to buy mine mailorder for years. Plan ahead is the name of the game for me. By dumb luck a major dairy supply house, IBA is based in town even though we have only one dairy farm. In a pinch I can go there for a few things. It is a pain because they don't do retail and they need to route my payment through an out of town dealer.

    The McRib must be a boost to the pork industry. I wonder how many they sell? It keeps coming back.
